POEM: END OF DAY

END OF DAY
© By Vickey Stamps
A gently aged loved one lay
Seeking peace near the end of day
A ‘signature on her life’ had been signed
With a body now weakened
…. A face now lined
As I tucked her in, I heard her say
“Lord, please give me one more day,
One more day to set things right
Lord, please see me through the night
May I forgive and be forgiven
Make my life be worth the livin’
Ready my mansion, for I draw near
Hold me close that I feel no fear”
I bent to kiss her troubled brow
And in silence prayer, “Lord teach me how.
Teach me to live in such a way
That I may turn to you, at the end of day”
